Happy Friday, friends!
What a week (rather two weeks to be precise) of some absolute lazy days it was for all of us at Framed Recipes 🙂 . We (Sonshine and I) did nothing but laze around the house, the whole day in our jammies, giggling, sharing stories, nagging each other (at times). We enjoyed some pie for the PI day, read a lot, talked a lot. Basically, had a gala time.
We also had crazy weather for the last few days. So, we enjoyed a gorgeous Spring Break (Sonshine gets his spring break in March) followed by temperatures in the 70s. Took out my spring/summer clothes, and basked in the glorious sunshine only to wake up to 8 inches of snow the next morning. So, it was snow shoveling time.
I wanted to make Sonshine’s spring break special. So, turned down all electronic gadgets like phone, laptop etc. and spent time with him. Cooked simple meals that he would enjoy, listened to stories he shared, picked out books with him to read (he does not like reading aloud anymore, where did my baby go? My little baby who loved to read aloud, I miss that phase a lot.). Did a few experiments with food, some turned out awesome, some absolute disasters. We laughed off the disasters and enjoyed the others.
We also went to IKEA looking for a study table for Sonshine. Well, he has outgrown the one he has now, but I am rethinking whether we should get him a new one. Even with a study table in his room, his work table is (and always has been) our dining table. So, wondering why spend money a new study table. While were were at IKEA, we found some boards in their “As-Is” section for a dollar. I bought a few to add to my table-top background collection. Can’t wait to use them in my photo shoots. Now, the only question I have to come up with an answer to is how to store my ever-growing prop collection. Any tips?
My sister who is in Bangalore tells me that they are reeling under the hot hot sun. It seems it gets worse everyday.
So, they have hot, hotter and hottest weather and we are having this crazy weather somersaults here in my part of the world.
So, this Cucumber Lemon Cooler is for all of you who are struggling under the ferocious sun and would like to keep yourself cool.
